Safe House

Milan Design Week 2011 will feature a concept home created with all the creepily sterile-looking furniture and other accoutrements you'd expect to find in the abode of a Grid denizen... er, program.

This is a digital rendering of the main chillin' section in the "Safe House." Disney and DuPont are sponsoring the exhibition; all parts of the Tron home will be made with DuPont's Corian--a solid-surface material normally used in countertops--because hey, who ever heard an isomorphic algorithm complain about comfort?

So what if the digital entertainment system in the Safe House looks like an awkward vending machine? What's important is that there's only one armchair, meaning you and Quorra will have to snuggle up close to watch the day's Light Jet match.

After a long day and a not-so-nice meeting with an algorithmic representation of your dad who also looks an awful lot like "the Dude," a little bonsai action in the bedroom sure helps you forget you're trapped in a computer.

Kitchen/dining area
